Being female often carries the weight of virtue, obedience and dependence.

We want to release us from these outdated identifiers and give them the space to explore gender roles, sexuality and the female experience without shame. Our mission is to unite women from every walk of life and give men a comprehensive resource to understand the female experience, building strong role models and future leaders in the process.

HOW DOES SIDEPIECE

Stand Out

Sidepiece Magazine is an educational tool, not just an entertainment magazine. It’s a social tool measuring intolerable attitudes and practices that have been normalized. It’s a mental health tool addressing the universal misnomer that females are alone in their personal insecurities.

Independent print women magazines are numerous yet diverse in audience interest. Popular themes are success in the creative industry, politics, social science and erotica. Sidepiece Magazine’s intent is to discuss and challenge the idea of the female experience.

Sidepiece Magazine’s approach to political and social views are not those out of hate but instead agreeing that feminism is a movement of fighting for equality of all individuals – regardless of gender.

Aubrey Smith

Dominique Stewart

@aubreymsmith_

MANAGING EDITOR

Dominique is a creative based in Miami. She currently writes and edits the Social Justice section for an online media company, The Tempest. Though she’s taken a hiatus from writing, her interest lies within the intersections of blackness and health; two topics she feels are rarely discussed together. She can be found with an orange in her bag spying on her neighbors.
